Fallout Vegas - shooting that guy in the head that said he the won lottery. I was gutted to not get any extra loot or caps from him. How could he lie like that.

"this not being on the PS3 in the first place is both surprising and astonishingly typical of the whole sad story that is the advent of the PS3 for PS2 owners

why are deverlopers still making games like this on the PS2?
because the PS3 is a total failure of a precedent set by Sony and so much of it lost through sheer stupidity

EG saying that it 'looks even better on the PS3' is really, really quite tactless
it's almost encouraging PS3 owners to BUY a PS2 game

if I hear one more thing about Folding@Paper on the PS3 from EG, I will quite literally rip my nasal hair out with a fucking tweezer"

There's always one .

From the various reviews I have read recently, I'm also not clear on whether the OEM version will let you upgrade PC components or not.

Its linked to just your motherboard and not components.

Interesting article, cheers.

The latter - DX10 cards - are currently in short supply, as only NVIDIA has released something suitable, in the form of the 260 and upwards 8800 range

Prices seem to drop constantly. I've seen 8800GTS cards (with very, very impressive benchmarks) in the 220 quid range already

Jeez, thats cheap where too?

"spend 150+ on this new operating system"

Forgive if im wrong but there are many Vista packages for much less than that including the Vista Home Premium 32-Bit Edition DVD - OEM which retails at 72?

...as for me personally, I thought the comment about not releasing the 20gb version as a retailer request was bullshit....they just want to up the price and make money from us poor brits whilst pretending to offer good value.....as for that line up of games.....its so poor that I take pity on the PR boys and girls as it must be like trying to sell a condom to the Pope.
ignore poster


So you believe the bullshit that Sony fed you about retailers then? The Games team here has bugged Sony for months about releasing the 20gb and continually complained about such a high price point (for joe public).

Super Columbine Massacre RPG - Part 1

Birdseye - the fact that its meaningless, just like everything Baudrillard and Boorstin ever wrote, said or thought about.

Kudos for a good wikipedia search, but your argument (such as I understand it) is bizarre and counter-intuitive. Post Modernism would have NO problem with this game, and there is no "hyper-reality" in it, as the creator of the game has gone out of his way to prevent any kind of imaginary world for the player to exist in, the game repeatedly and deliberately reinforces to the player again and again that this is a game, and actively prevents the creation of any kind of internal universe.

In short, the concepts you are throwing around willy-nilly have no relevance what so ever to this debate, and your short burst posts only

I am on about the links that should be made between hyper-reality and videogames (and no i didnt use wiki) because Since the introduction of 3D graphics and CGI into the public realm. There has been a huge drive from the computer game industry and Hollywood toward a notion of hyper-reality, a reality that is more real than the one in which we exist for instance computer manufactures and games companies are continually informing consumers that their products are literally pushing the boundaries of technology to present us with huge worlds of imagination and representation. That function on the basis of reality like, realistic car handling, realistic damage and realistic weather. The idealistic notion of the real that these industries tell its consumers can not be made more obvious with videogame titles such as Gran Turismo: the real driving simulator and Real world golf 2007 everything about this entertainment medium continually relates back to realism.

captbirdseye - wow! That's an extremely broad conclusion, and I can't think of a single piece of evidence that could possibly back it up...

You can have bonus points for using the phrase "hyper-real" though, which is a piece of post-modernist nonsense vocabulary that no-one, but NO-ONE actually knows the meaning of

Chill out man, im only making an assumption based on the work of Baudrillard and Borstin which i have read and what is exactly wrong with using 'hyper-realilty' as a definition for videogames.

Games are fundamentally turning our society into a hyper-real one, where the less stable minded person is perceiving this medium as actual reality.
